#NavyNews -  A tour by the Prince of Wales of an Irish Naval Service patrol ship, to retrace steps of his ancestors in Cork and Kerry and be briefed on world-renowned conservation projects around Killarney are planned during his visit to the Republic next month.

It has emerged writes The Belfast Telegraph that the three-day visit was organised at the specific request of the Prince, who has for years wanted to visit a number of historic Cork and Kerry sites.

He will be accompanied by his wife, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall for the visit, which is scheduled to begin in Cork on June 14.

The Belfast Telegraph has learned that Charles, who visited the Republic with Camilla in 2016, has specifically requested a tour of the historic Haulbowline Naval Base in Cork harbour.

It was formerly a strategically important dockyard of Britain's Royal Navy.

First fortified in 1602, not long after the Spanish Armada's failed invasion bid, Haulbowline Island is now the main base of the Irish Naval Service.
